I'm heading to Bucyrus this afternoon to pick up the winning brats for delivery to Buddy when he's here.

I might even stop at G&R Tavern in Waldo for a fried bologna sandwich on the way.
 
UPDATE
 
Three pounds of bratwurst from Carle's in Bucyrus, Ohio are now resting comfortbly in my freezer. One pound stays here.

Any good jello salad recipes out there?


Why stop at salad?  I think you can find a myriad of ideas right here.

A new product from Vienna Beef? 



Last year was the Big Wally, is this the Big Buddy?

Nope, an offering from a 1960's outdoors cookbook, the Paul Bunyan Frank.  Bon Appétit.

Buddy Roadhouse - If it's not too much trouble to stop in Hudson, a visit to RJ's Meats would be appreciated.  One pound of their Grand Champion Brats for me.  One pound of their Grand Champion Brats for Michael.  I'll reimburse you next time we cross paths.

Jim,

Only problem is, I'll be passing through Hudson after 7:30-8:0pm on Sunday night.  I'm guessing RJ's will be long closed by the time we get there.

In fact, I'm still not sure how we'll keep those Bucyrus brats cold all the way back to Chicago.  Don't worry, we'll figure it out once I get the specifics for that trip from my Ohio distributor.

Buddy

Buddy,

I said "if it's not too much trouble."  Sounds like it is.  No worry, there are numerous other excellent brats available that I can buy.

I will stop by Schmeissers here in Niles- they have a variety of delicious and creative sausages that I will be happy to contribute.
I'll see what looks inspiring.

The cherry berry pie is phenomenal, as was the peach butterscotch. That one with the sugar baked into the crust before she puts the filling in is TO DIE FOR.

Will there be a Brat throwdown like last year? Maybe some saguaro-roadrunner Brats to shake things up a bit? Do they even have Brats in Arizona?

 
Of course we have Brats in AZ!! We make Chizoro Brats, Javalina Brats, Machaca Brats and Rattlesnake Brats! We also have some meat markets that make their own  that are Midwestern Style Brats

Just because there aren't going to be pies, doesn't mean I am not making anything. I can make things other than pies, you know.

Now you've done it. You've challenged the Pie Diva's Culinary Pride. The result should be something Extraordinary coming from the Diva's kitchen!

Yes, yes, I know. It's just that your name is...Pie Diva.

Remember those chocolate ganache things you made for the Big Pig Gig? And you froze them? ZOMG those were killer.

Hmmmmm. I may bring asparagus wrapped with proscuitto. Those can go on the grill?

She's not just the Pie Diva, she is the Dessert Maven. Tarts, homemade caramels, fudge, oh you have no idea. Things that would be good on their own, she tweaks until they're so good people remember them 3 years later.

Anybody interested in some of the HOTTEST, SPICIEST, Hungarian brats that exist?  My husband had a deer processed and made into mostly hungarian brats.  We get them every year and they are spicy, but not unedible....until this year.  One bite and you can't stand it.  My husband is someone who orders everything at any restaurant "as spicy as you can possibly make it" and doesn't flinch.  He can't even handle these gut bombs.  Anybody game for this?  I can send on dry ice......

You're in the Falls, why not stop by? I bet if JRPfeff grills them, then cuts them into slices on toothpicks, people would eat them.
 
I can bring the toothpicks!!!
 
 
 
iris, how dare I forget about the bacon baklava? HOW DARE I???!?!?!?

They were made by Detjen's Meats in Watertown, WI.  They have excellent sausage, but this batch appears to have been somewhat of a mistake from the amount of HOT seasoning in it.

These things are so hot, I'm afraid to even put them in my vehicle.  You may want to search the web for toothpicks made of Kryptonite.  I swear these things took the finish off my silverware.

MFL loves hot things, I bet he can eat at least half of one.

stricken, I've never found anything too hot however it still has to taste good.
That leaves Dave's Insanity out of my diet. I make my own Scotch Bonnet/Habanero hot sauce that I eat almost daily but it is delicious. If those brats are hot but bitter or unbalanced in taste, I'll leave them for the Man vs Food dude. I'm not willing to brave a sore afterburn the next day unless I like the taste, ya know.

Looks like I'll be calling in Adam Richman.  The brats are a little heavy on paprika as well as plain old hotness. 
 
Anybody got his number?
